It may be easier to do this is a RPG IV program by using the &year and
&month parms as part of an initialized *ISO date field, (defaults to
d                 DS                                    
d Isodate                         d   Inz               
d  Isoyyyy                       4  0 Overlay(Isodate)  
d  Isomm                         2  0 Overlay(Isodate:6)
Add 1 month via ADDDUR
c                   AddDur    1:*Months     Isodate

Subtract 1 day via SUBDUR
c                   SubDur    1:*Days       Isodate
The result will be the last day of the &month, &year combination.  You could
then use QCMDEXC to submit/call the QMQRY.

Subject: Last Day of Last Month

I am writing some CL's to automate some monthly jobs that are usually
submitted through user menus.  This particular CL submits a job with the
prior month and year as the parms (let's say &YEAR (4) and &MONTH (2)).
Then, the CL does a STRQMQRY with the year, month, and day of the last day
of that month.  Does anyone have a sample of the easiest way to figure out
the last day of a particular month (i.e.  if run today, the year and month
would be 1999 09, and the CL would need to pass 19990930 to the query.)?

I know the method for passing parms with STRQMQRY, I am just wondering if
anyone has some code laying around that gives you the last day of the month
(accounting for leap years also).
